How does the pop up blocker in IE work. I have a page that I go to that loads up x10 pix. In Internet Explorer 7 or 8, if I have the popup blocker set at max (no popups) only some of the pix load, but when I have it at the recommended medium setting, all the pix load no problem.
There are no popup tags in the code.
Can anyone explain this.

Would you not rather use a 3rd party PopUp blocker app?
3rd Party annihilate popups, MS tends to *cough* allow certain popups...

....I'm back, but only as a part-timer... :)

Hay, Jase
I WANT to load all the pix. I just don't understand how having the popup blocker on Max will block pix that are NOT popups.
And, when I refresh the page, different pix load. eg I might get x8 of them the first time, then after refreshing get a different combination of the x8.

If you set IE's popup blocker on high it will block everything no matter what, with Ctrl+click being the override for this behavior. Of course, you can never tell when someone might visit your page with settings turned up to max, so the accessible approach you mentioned from ALA is good and sound.
